II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Shropshire Council is setting up a Framework of service providers for Supported Living Services for adults with learning disabilities who live in single or joint tenancies in the community. The Council wishes to appoint providers for 1 categories of support: a maximum of 5 providers for higher level services and a maximum of 7 providers for lower level services and only providers appointed to the Framework will be able to quote for supported living services in Shropshire for the duration of the Framework. The framework will be a 4 year period targeted to commence on the 1.9.2016.

High level support services are deemed to be for individuals who may have combinations of some of the following more complex behaviours: self-injurious; difficult to engage; poor motivation; aggressive outbursts; complex behaviours associated with autistic spectrum disorder; obsessive/compulsive; attention seeking. Such services will require psychological and specialist behavioural support on a regular basis to ensure that there are robust support plans in place to enable people to regain as much independence as possible.

Low level support is deemed to be for individuals who do not present with the above mentioned more complex behaviours and are likely to require less support hours, but may have behaviours associated with autistic spectrum disorder and still require significant support to maintain independence in the home and in the community.

In all supported living services there will be a requirement for sleep or wake nights or both. The day support hours will be a minimum of 50 hours per week but may require 2 or 3 staff on duty for 14 hours each day 7 days per week.

Once a service provider is appointed onto this Framework they will have the opportunity to quote along with all other appointed providers for all new supported living schemes for adults with learning disabilities in the appropriate category (high or low level support) to which the provider is appointed. However each provider will be required to quote at a maximum of its tendered costs and will be awarded individual supported living services on the basis of their cost submission. The Council will develop its existing electronic brokerage system to incorporate supported living opportunities and all providers on the Framework will be given access to this system.

The Council reserves the right to temporarily suspend a provider from the Framework where it considers that there are significant safeguarding concerns about the quality of service being provided.

The Council will have full nomination rights to the services.

In the interest of continuity for individuals receiving the services under this Framework, the individual care contracts awarded will be for longer periods than the 4 years of the Framework itself.

As a public authority, in-line with the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, the Council has due regard to economic, social and environmental well-being in Shropshire. Accordingly the council will be looking, in relation to the delivery of this contract, for proposals from contractors that could help provide social value benefits within Shropshire where practicable and to maximise the social and economic impact of the proposed contract.

This is a notice for Social and specific services in accordance with Directive 2014/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council Article 74 being Public Health Services. Accordingly the Council will follow a process based on the principles of transparency. The Council will treat all economic operators equally and in a non-discriminatory way.
